The COW was just introduced to one of the coolest new creative tools we've seen in a while, PLOTAGRAPH PRO, a tool which powerfully animates still images. Imagine animating your still images to become full high resolution video -- all the way up to 4K. This goes way beyond the kind of still image tricks that video artists have used in the past. Years ago, Ken Burns pushed simple scaling animations of still images using Rostrum Camera techniques in his productions for PBS, seen in documentaries like "The Civil War," "Jazz" and others. Then along came animating areas of images to create the illusion of perspective and dimension, the pseudo 3D effect we've seen used on still images. Now Plotagraph Pro creates still image animations that set a new and much higher benchmark for animating stills. Check out this video tutorial for more about Plotagraph Pro.
